Plastisol is a dispersion of fine high molecular weight polyvinyl chloride (PVC) synthetic resin suspended in a non-volatile liquid plasticizer system that is cured by heat to form a solid end product. Additional materials are added to this liquid mixture to achieve varying final properties.
Plastisol undergoes a phase change in the presence of heat (~350°F) to change from a liquid to a gel and finally to a solid as it cools. Softer varieties of plastisol are considered “hot melt” or remeltable due to the level of plasticizer. Harder plastisols (>Shore A35) cannot be remelted.
Plastisol is a very versatile material with uses in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.
